Visitors can get an insider’s perspective and explore the Aquarium like never before with the National Aquarium’s Tours & Experiences. There's a tour to please everyone! Highlights include:

* National Aquarium Insider’s Tour: Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at the Aquarium? The Insider’s Tour is your chance to step into our stories and see the Aquarium in a brand-new way! Your guide will share fascinating stories about our animals and the habitats they call home, lead you to exclusive staff-only areas, take you up-close with one of our animal residents and so much more.

* Sharks! Behind-the-Scenes: Go behind the scenes with an expert guide to discover the truth about these incredible ocean creatures. Learn how the Aquarium team cares for a variety of sharks—including the school of sleek, fast moving blacktip reef sharks in our Blacktip Reef exhibit. You’ll also have the chance to walk the catwalk above Shark Alley, where sharks swim silently below, if you’re feeling brave.

* Shark! Ocean Predator Overnight: Explore the Aquarium after dark! Once the Aquarium has closed to the public, guests will learn about sharks through interactive activities, get an after-hours tour of the aquarium and enjoy dinner. You’ll also have the opportunity to set up your sleeping bag and fall asleep under the watchful eye of our sharks.
